Alicia Keys dropped a hair bombshell on her social media followers on Thursday when she posted a stunning new photo featuring a totally different side of the artist.
(Perhaps the summer heat got to her?) No caption, no context, just leaving us to drool over her enviable new ‘do: a very short, Ariel-the-mermaid-red bob.
At first glance, the bob will have you doing a double take, because Keys is almost unrecognizable with a cut this short. Don’t get us wrong, the 37-year-old musician has rocked a lot of looks during her career, but she’s usually known for long braids or bouncy natural curls. The sleek, structured cut is a markedly different aesthetic than the au naturel vibes she’s been running with, but this new photo just proves that Keys is a true hair-and-beauty chameleon.
While the new cut is definitely attention-grabbing, Keys’s radiant skin fights for top billing. Of course, her flawless skin is no surprise considering the singer has been skincare goals for years, especially as she’s embraced and promoted the #NoMakeup movement and opted instead for a perfected skincare regimen.
Or perhaps that kind of glow that can only come from knowing how utterly fabulous you are.
